ISO14443 Smart Card Testing Platforms

Test platforms for ISO14443 protocol emulate reader to card signals and analyze card responses, or spy on devices to capture and analyze signals between card and reader

KEOLABS provides three test platforms - ProxiLAB, ProxiSPY, NomadLAB - for validation of proximity contactless smart cards  (operating at 13.56 MHz) which implement the ISO14443 communication protocol, including sub-protocols:

  • ISO 14443 Type A

  • ISO 14443 Type B

ProxiLAB signal emulator and protocol analyzer provides laboratory class capabilities for validation and certification of contactless smart cards. It is implemented in application-specifc and functional certification solutions for the ISO14443 standard.

ProxiSPY communication spy and protocol analyzer provides laboratory class capabilities for diagnosis of interoperability problems that arise between contactless cards and readers or NFC mobile phones.

NomadLAB provides communication spy and protocol analysis capabilities on a platform that is both easily portable and tailored to provide the diagnostic information to support application developers, and engineering teams who are maintaining and supporting fielded smart card products.
